Season 32, Episode 7 My Uncle Silas II
First Aired: January 12, 2003
“My Uncle Silas II.” Albert Finney returns as a lovable Edwardian-era rascal making the most of life---and, not infrequently, lust---in the bucolic English countryside. The two-hour program consists of five more sketches based on short stories by H.E. Bates (1905-74). “Your Uncle Silas is a rogue, but sometimes he can be a saint,” a nurse named Topsy (Jacquetta May)---whom he seduces---tells his great-nephew Ned (Joe Prospero) in the final story, in which Silas comes to the aid of a dotty war veteran (Bryan Pringle). Earlier, he helps a farmhand (Tony Maudsley) win a farm maid (Sandy McDade). Silas seduces her, too. Mrs. Betts: Sue Johnston.
